“A luxury facility and designed to be enjoyed.”
Reviewed 19 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed in the Gamekeepers cottage for 3 days and it was a wonderful visit. The quality of the premises is of the highest standard and superbly appointed with 5 star finishing touches. One of the party is a chef and his joy at the kitchens superlative equipment was mentioned with gusto, even in the later hours whilst soaking in the hot tub. The en suite bedrooms are truly exceptional, with beds that do not want to be left. It is, as the advertisement states a luxury facility and designed to be enjoyed. We will be visiting again.

“Amazingly beautiful setting and the highest quality accomodation”
Reviewed 15 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Our rather short stay at Rivercatcher cottages was nothing short of amazing, even the sun came out for us. The setting is beautiful and the attention to detail is exceptional. We stayed in the Gamekeeps Cottage and I can honestly say I have never stayed in such beautiful accommodation. Will be returning as soon as we have an excuse to return to Wales, thank you very much.

“Exceptional and worth every one of its 5 stars”
Reviewed 4 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We picked one of the rather wet and windy weekends in January 2016 to visit Wales with a plan of climbing Snowdon, paying a visit to Zipworld Caverns and relaxing in comfortable surroundings after the exertion. Without reservation, this has has to be one of the most comfortable and beautifully equipped cottages that we've had the pleasure of relaxing in.
Attention to detail has been considered at such a level that many of the items we brought were redundant as these were already provided within the cottages. Each and every room beautifully appointed and furnished in a 'comfortable cottagey' way with a contemporary twist. A separate laundry room is available for use of all cottages as is a games room equipped for table football and table tennis. Cosy and warm in front of the log burner, a completed scrabble game on the coffee table and feeling exhausted from the exhilaration of the Welsh great outdoors with the hot tub calling from under the night sky . Exceptional!

Liked best: Opening the door and finding such a beautiful and welcoming cottage
Liked least: When wet and windy the hot tub is not really usable - maybe a 'sail' with rope fittings for such occasions?

“A truely beautiful cottage to stay for a relaxing holiday.”
Reviewed 25 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Wow! What a find..... a beautiful location enhances these fabulous selection of cottages tucked away on the River Dee. Booking four out of five luxury cottages for a family weekend birthday celebration was a gamble as not having stayed in the area before we were unsure of what we would find however, the location, furnishings /maintainance of the cottages, knowledge and assistance of Jen and her team would not disappoint. Nothing was too much trouble and was sorted in an instant. Customer service / housekeeping was exceptional along with Alled the wonderful handyman, who discreetly maintained the hot tubs daily along with his many other tasks. A big thank you to you all we could not have wished for anything more. We will definitely be booking again!
